ANSWERS ABOUT HEARING AIDS AND MORE

Frequently Asked Questions

Hearing aid prices vary from several hundred dollars up to a few thousand, and it all depends on the technology level in each device. Affordable hearing aids and the more expensive options come with different features and capabilities.

You can think of hearing aids as coming in levels of gold, silver, or bronze. If your listening needs are simple, it just might be that even the most basic hearing aid is enough for you. If your life is more active and you find yourself wanting to hear better in more active and noisy listening environments, then a more sophisticated level of hearing aid features will give you more benefit.

NexGen Hearing also offers financing options to help you with an affordable option to improve your hearing. Learn more about our lease to hear financing and other hearing aid financing options.

There are many signs and symptoms of hearing loss. The signs of hearing loss can differ from person to person depending on the type of hearing loss that they are experiencing. General signs of hearing loss include:
  • Voices sounding muffled or unclear
  • Not being able to tell where a sound is coming from (known as localization)
  • Needing higher volume settings on televisions, stereos and headphones
  • Trouble differentiating between foreground and background noise
If you notice any of these signs in your life, contact our hearing clinic right away to schedule a free hearing test.

We do perform cerumen management at a small number of our NexGen Hearing clinics, most clinics prefer to provide this service to existing clients only. If you are a new client call ahead to find out which clinic offers cerumen management please call us at 1 (877) 606 6671.

 

If you have any history of outer ear pathology or ear infections, we recommend you see your family doctor.

Most people will naturally start to lose their hearing around the age of 65. Certain factors can cause people to being to lose their hearing sooner or later in life, such as:
  • Smoking (studies show that smokers experience more hearing loss than non-smokers)
  • Genetics
  • Medical Conditions
  • Medications
  • Sickness
  • Repeated Exposure to Loud Noises
It is always a good idea to get your hearing tested regularly to make sure your hearing health is in good order, and this is especially the case as you get older and closer to 65 years of age. Contact us today to schedule a free hearing test at our clinic!

The act of not wearing a hearing aid in itself will not make your hearing get worse. What can make your hearing get worse is not wearing a hearing aid and needing to increase the volume on things like televisions, radios, and headphones, or needing people you are talking with to talk louder. We recommend you wear your hearing aid as directed by your doctor and audiologist. However, if you are not wearing your hearing device, be sure not to overdo it with turning up the volume.
